[Death has arrived at the knight's castle]
Block: Out of the darkness we call to thee, O Lord! Oh, God, have mercy on us! For we are small and afraid and without knowledge!
Jöns: In the darkness where you claim to be, where we all probably are, in that darkness you shall find no one to listen to your laments or to be moved by your suffering. Wipe your tears and regard yourself reflected in your own insignificance.
Block: God, you who are somewhere, who must be somewhere, have mercy on us!
Jöns: I could have given you a herb to purge your worries about eternity, but it seems to be too late. But in any case, feel, to the last instant, the immense triumph in rolling your eyes and wriggling your toes!
Karin: Quiet! Quiet!
Jöns: I will be quiet, but under protest.
[Jöns's housekeeping girl approaches Death, kneels, and smiles up at him]
Girl: It is finished.
